  10. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant, but surprisingly gentle for a cask strength Caol Ila of almost 60% Abv.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Some peatsmoke, fake leather, roasted meat, alcohol pretty prominent. Pretty light nose actually for a cask strength Caol Ila.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Some pepper, but surprisingly gently concerning the high Abv. Licorice, sweet smoke, some chocolate as well.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Still some pepper, sweet smoke, chocolate, honey, pretty long. Later on a little tobacco as well.
